936 pm edt Sun may 26 2019

Synopsis
High pressure will build in from the west overnight as a weak
cold front approaches from the north. The front will drop south
through the region on Monday with little more than passing
clouds. High pressure will build over the area Monday night and
will shift offshore on Tuesday. Weak low pressure will pass out
to sea south of new england Tuesday night and Wednesday. A warm
front will approach from the southwest Wednesday night and will
stall south of the region on Thursday. A cold front will
approach from the west Thursday night and will push east
through the region on Friday.

Near term through Monday
930 pm update...

forecast is in good shape with temperatures dropping off
gradually. Adjusted temperatures and dew points to match current
observational trends.

615 pm update...

minor changes to the forecast this evening to usher out showers
across the forecast area. Still some small showers sprinkles
over southern somerset and waldo counties, but these are rapidly
diminishing. Convective debris clouds are dissipating and it
should clear up nicely tonight. Still looking for about a 30
degree drop for the overnight lows... With lower to mid 40s north
to upper 40s some 50s south.

Previous discussion...

scattered showers ahead of a cold front are moving out of the
mountains and into central and southern portions of maine and
new hampshire early this afternoon. One thunderstorm has
popped up northeast of augusta where better instability is
situated and expect any more convection to generally be confined
to eastern zones over the next several hours. Expect showers to
gradually move offshore by early evening as the front continues
east.

Clouds will gradually dry up this evening as downsloping and
drier air advects into the region. Low temperatures overnight
will range through the 40s north and lower to mid 50s south.

Short term Monday night
Weak cold front will drop south through the region on Monday
with not much more than passing clouds. High temperatures will
be closer to normal with highs ranging through the 60s north and
70s south.

Behind the front... High pressure will build over the region
Monday night. Clear skies and light winds will allow for good
radiational cooling and frost warnings will likely be needed
for northern and central zones. Lows will range from the lower
to mid 30s in the north and upper 30s to mid 40s south.

Long term Tuesday through Sunday
12z models in relatively good agreement for this package.

Disturbances will cross south of the region during the early
portion of the extended forecast. This will keep conditions in
northern new england on the wet and cool side Tuesday and
Wednesday.

A warm front will remain south of new england Tuesday with
cooler air in northern new england. This will allow showers to
enter the region, mainly over southern portions of maine and new
hampshire. Highs will be in the 60s which is still below normal
for this time of the year.

Low pressure will develop along this boundary on Wednesday,
keeping unsettled conditions in the region. The chance for
showers will increase Wednesday night as the system heads out
into the atlantic and a warm front approaches from the south.

By Thursday, yet another disturbance, a cold front, will slowly
approach from the north. Showers and scattered showers will
cross the region, lasting into Thursday night.

High pressure will finally bring drier air into the region
Friday and Saturday.

Aviation 02z Monday through Friday
Short term...VFR tonight through Monday night.

Long term... Areas of ifr conditions, mainly over southern areas
in low clouds and showers Tuesday night into Wednesday. This
unsettled pattern will continue with another system Thursday and
Thursday night.

Marine
Short term... No flags.

Long term... Gusty winds expected for a short period Monday
night and again Friday from the northwest. Otherwise, winds and
seas will mainly be below SCA thresholds.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
